Nothing really special about this camping spot. We were in town for a UFO conference and needed a cheap solution. This fit the bill. Even though the campground is not much to speak of, the UFO Watchtower is interesting. Kind of a hodgepodge of alien-inspired art on the grounds. The watchtower is not really that high off the ground. Even so, you have spectacular views of The Valley and even if you don't see any UFOs, chances are you'll see shooting stars and satellites.

Back to the campground. Sites are dirt/gravel, close to each other, not really level, and there are a few porto pottys. They kept them pretty clean. You're about 38min from the Great Sand Dunes NP, 5min from the Sand Dunes Swimming Pool, which is a hot spring fed pool and they also have an adults-only area in the greenhouse. 24min away from Alamosa, and 30min away from Crestone. So, even though the campground is lacking, it is in a convenient location.
